I have been cleaning up my hard disk of folders left behind by ununstalled programms, & I've come across the "config.MSI" folder which contains nearly 4 GBs of data. I've checked on the net and discover that this folder is created by MS and the files are "roll-back script" files for Office 2000.

Well, this is a mystery-I have never had MS Office on my computer. I can only presume that it is to do with other progs/installations.

Can anyone explain this, and is it allright for me to delete the files or the folder itself?

Much appreciation for any advice,

PcB.

gmh,

Thanks for the link-I had already seen it, however..this is where I got the info that the config.MSI files supposedly relate to Office 2000.

But as I said, I have never had MSOffice or any of it's constituents at all on this computer.

However, of the 4gb of files, all but one are dated the same month and of these 95% on the same day, within the same hour.
This mkes me recall that I reformatted my hard disk around that time (I think) (next time I'll make note of it!).

Could these files relate to a Windows installation?
